Using status reading command with aria?

Hello all,
I thought I read somewhere that screen readers will look for elements where
the role is set to "status", instead of "log" or other roles, and use that
as the status bar. That is, if the user presses the "say status bar"
command, the content of the element is read. Did I mis-read this? I can't
get it to work, but it'd be nice if I could. Thanks.
